At the \expndtw5 very commencement of his career, he had to bear the \expndtw7 brunt of the Rastrakuta aggressions, since we are told \expndtw1 in the Cambay plates of Govinda IV that Indra III "com\-\expndtw10 pletely devastated" the hostile city of Mahodaya \expndtw0 (Kanauj).\super 2\nosupersub  Accompanied by his feudatory, Narasimha \expndtw5 Calukya, he plundered the land as far east as Prayaga. \expndtw8 The Palas took advantage of this attack, which must \expndtw0 have occurred about 916-17 A.D., and recovered some of \expndtw3 their ancestral dominions up to the eastern banks of the \expndtw12 river Sone.}\par \pard \plain \cbpat8\qj\li0\fi472\ri32\sb4\sa0\sl-241\slmult0 \f2\fs20\i{\b0\i0\cf1\charscalex100\expndtw4\f2\cchs0\lang1033\fs24 Thus, though there were some secessions in the \expndtw16 outlying parts of the realm, Mahipala soon tided \expndtw11 over his initial troubles and resumed his father's \expndtw2 schemes of conquest. For a magniloquent verse in the \expndtw11 introduction to the \i Pracanda-Pdndavcfi \i0 shows that \expndtw0 his influence was felt by the Muralas (inhabitants of the Narmacla regions), Mekhalas (of the Amarakantak hills), \expndtw1 Kalingas, Keralas, Kulutas, Kuntalas, and the Ramathas \expndtw3 (dwelling beyond Prithudaka). There are, however, \expndtw9 indications that the closing years of Mahipala were \expndtw1 again seriously disturbed owing to the northern invasions \expndtw2 of Krisna III Rastrakuta.\super 4\nosupersub  Al Mas'udi, who visited the \expndtw5 valley of the Indus in \i Hijri \i0 303-04=915-16 A.D. and \expndtw3 wrote an account of his travels in H. 332=943-44 A.D., \expndtw7 bears eloquent testimony to the strength of the forces}\par \pard \plain \li0\ri0\sb0\sa0\pvpara\phcol\posnegx1364\posnegy1066\absw0\absh1094\nowrap\dfrmtxtx40\dfrmtxty58 {\pict\wmetafile8\picw4673\pich1930\picwgoal2649\pichgoal1094
